Florida Sunshine Skyway Bridge and the Cruise Ship

The Sunshine Skyway is a landmark of our beautiful Tampa Bay area.  I drive it often from Bradenton to St. Pete, Clearwater and Tampa.  I recently was on my way to Clearwater to photograph the rock band Foreigner.  As I was approaching the bridge, I looked out to see two cruise ships out in the bay.  It occurred to me that those ships would be making it to the bridge soon.  I decided to make a stop at the north fishing pier where there is a good view of the bridge. There were several people who had also stopped to watch as the ships got closer to the bridge.

Anna Maria Historical Pier Needs Rebuilding Funds

There was a $1.5M grant given by the Anna Maria Tourism Development Council and the Anna Maria Preservation Trust is trying to match that with donations to an official GoFundMe account which has been set up for tax deductible donations. The estimate is $3-4 million to rebuild.
